Description

The AccESS PHI supports a wide variety of applications, and multiple generation sources: Solar, Wind, Hydro, Grid or Generators. Maximize solar PV generation by storing excess power for critical backup, evening hours and daily self-consumption to offset Time-Of-Use rates. Net-Metered customers can add energy storage to existing grid-tied solar systems for standby power or energy arbitrage. Off-grid customers can take advantage of integrated MPPT charge controls to create stand-alone systems for whole-home power and generator optimization with auto start capabilities. Create resilience, energy security and daily cost savings with 98% efficient, safe and reliable access to power – 24/7.

SimpliPhi Power designs and manufactures efficient, non-toxic and enduring energy storage and management systems that utilize lithium ferro phosphate (LFP). Based in California, SimpliPhi combines non-hazardous LFP chemistry with its proprietary cell and battery architecture, power electronics, battery management system (BMS) and manufacturing methods to create safe, reliable, durable and highly scalable on-demand power solutions. Available for the residential, commercial, military and emergency response markets, SimpliPhi storage solutions have been rigorously tested and passed operational performance requirements by the U.S. Army and Marine Corps. Integral to all SimpliPhi solutions is a proprietary management system that further optimizes the life-cycle, round-trip efficiency rate, performance and durability of its batteries. SimpliPhi PHI 3.8 kWh 48V 60 Amp batteries are Certified to UL 1973 Standard.
